THE ART GROUP by Barry Claughton

Open meeting – everyone welcome

We meet every Friday in the warm and comfortable New Room at Oakwood Church from 19.30 until 21.30 – except when we take breaks at Easter, in the August school holidays and over Christmas and New Year.

You don’t have to come every week, just drop in when you can, or whenever the muse is upon you

Everyone is welcome. For more than 20 years The Art Group at Oakwood Church has been enjoyed by local people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds, from complete beginners and accompanied children to established local Artists. We explore our own ideas, in our own medium, in our own way, at our own pace, and share our knowledge, experience and inspiration with each other.

There are no rules, no lessons, no homework, no expectations and no pressures – which make it a kind, sociable and truly relaxing way to start the weekend. The only thing that matters is that you enjoy being creative.

Some people work in watercolours, others in oil paints, acrylic paints, pastels, pen and ink, pencil, card, modelling clay, beads, fabrics, graphic design on computer – there are no limits on your imagination and creativity. Bring your own materials – a pencil and paper are one of many inexpensive starting points. Some of us have time to develop their projects between meetings but others, like me, can only make time to be creative by setting aside Friday evenings.

We request a donation of £3 each meeting towards room costs but don’t want anyone to exclude themselves so please, only donate what you can afford. Accompanied children are free. Refreshments are also provided free of charge by those of us who volunteer to put our names on a rota.

Just drop-in one Friday evening or, if you would like to know more, please
